City of Melbourne Celebrates Florida City Government Week
The City of Melbourne will be joining cities throughout the state in celebrating Florida City Government Week October 21-25.
Because city government is the government closest to most citizens, and the one with the most direct daily impact upon its residents, it is important that residents understand how their city operates, the services it provides and the importance of their active involvement. The theme My City: I’m Part of It, I’m Proud of It will guide this year’s activities.
“During Florida City Government Week we hope to encourage our residents to learn more about the many services we provide and how they can get involved in local government,” said Mayor Kathy Meehan.
Florida City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is a weeklong celebration that raises awareness about the importance of municipal government and its daily impact on residents. The League is the official organization of the municipal governments in Florida.
